NEC Welcomes Greater Industry Collaboration on Facial Recognition Technology

NEC Showcasing Innovations at NRF 2019: Retail’s Big Show Facial recognition technology and data analytics continue to change the in-store experience for shoppers.

These technologies enable a more-meaningful, personalized in-store shopping experience, while also making checkout and other in-store processes more cost effective and efficient for retailers and customers alike.

From Jan. 13-15, 2019, nearly 37,000 retailers and industry experts from around the world will descend on the Javits Convention Center in New York to attend NRF 2019, the world’s largest retail conference and expo.

As soon as they step into booth #1936, visitors enter a virtual store to encounter first-hand a new, improved in-store experience, resulting in better engagement for customers and tangible business benefits for retailers.

Instead of waiting until checkout to ID loyal customers (when it’s too late for meaningful customer engagement), automatic identification results in 100% loyalty redemption rates for in-store shoppers.

Retailers Rely on Data Analytics to Tailor the Shopping Experience For retail businesses, the ability to access up-to-the-minute sales data analytics helps them survive and thrive in this competitive marketplace.

Sales data aids in managing inventory plus helps store managers more effectively plan staffing, especially during critical times of high traffic.

Stores have the capability to create heat maps to track and manage shoppers’ interest in various products or displays within the store.

The data gleaned from the in-person shopping experience helps retailers improve their outreach through targeted emails, app notifications and even in-store messaging.
